Last week, Toronto fell in love with our mayor. He'll have to make way, though, for the most recent local darlings of Ontario, David Green and Mary Winton Green, who love the Stratford Festival so much, they've ponied up a million bucks to support it (their story runs in today's Globe and Mail). Though the Canadian press have expressed admiration for Chicago theater in the past, the Greens have been heading north for 35 years now, apparently to escape the "muttering" of method acting. And, while they might go a little less frequently these days, they still make the 450mi drive at least once a year. As they're in their 80s, that's some definite dedication.
